Farming

Farming is the process of growing fruit, vegetables, and other produce.

Kitchen Garden[edit | edit source]

The kitchen garden is located directly south of the workyard and requires permission before usage.

Unlocking[edit | edit source]

 •  First, read the sign in the north at the blueprint table, telling you to apply to Horadric for it.

 •  Second, speak to Horadric at the tavern and ask about the garden. This will unlock the farming technologies. He'll give you a
Garden certificate
which can be used at the blueprint table in the kitchen garden.

 •  Third, use the garden certificate to claim the property. Until you learn more about farming, you can only build an empty garden bed.

 •  Fourth, talk to the merchant at Gluttony about the garden and make a deal with him. You'll be able to work the garden without this, but you won't be able to advance his questline.

You may swap the third and fourth step.

Basic Crops[edit | edit source]

Basic crops lack quality levels. This appears as a star Copper Quality, Silver Quality, or Gold Quality in the upper right corner. Crops and seeds cannot be improved, so they don't benefit from quality bonus of a corresponding fertilizers. That being said, they do benefit from quantity bonus of quality fertilizers. A good tactic is to grow them on at least Peat fertilizer, that way you reduce seed loss and, in turn, reduce the need to buy new seeds. However, due to random nature of farming, this isn't guaranteed. In order to become fully self-sufficient, some of the seeds must be grown with silver quality fertilizer. The farmer only sells basic crops at Tier I.

Improvable Crops[edit | edit source]

These crops each have a quality level, which has the potential of being improved with fertilizer. Only improvable crops can be packed into crates at the crate factory to be sold through the trade office.

Compost[edit | edit source]

The compost heap turns eight units of crop waste into six units of peat and two units of maggots. Peat serves as a 'starter' fertilizer with a copper quality and copper boost, as well as being a necessary ingredient for crafting more advanced fertilizers.

Peat is also necessary for certain craftable landscapes, such as berry bushes and apple trees in the orchard, and flower beds in the graveyard. Maggots are not related to farming otherwise, and can instead be utilized through fishing and alchemy.

Zombie Farm[edit | edit source]

If you don't want to work your farm on your own, get some Zombie item.pngzombies and have them do all the hard work for you in a zombie farm.

Orchard[edit | edit source]

This is where trees and shrubs can be planted. This is separate from the kitchen garden and has its own workbench. The seeds can be obtained from the witch. Before using it, you have to get rid of the dead trees blocking a lot of room there. You need to unlock the "Woodcutter" technology for this.

Vineyard[edit | edit source]

The vineyard is west of Witch Hill. It is where you grow grapes and hops. It is inaccessible until you gain access to the Witch Hill.

This can be done by speaking with the inquisitor for the first time on Wrath, which causes the guard to let you pass in the future. You can alternatively remove the large fallen tree blocking the path to the north east of your home to create a shortcut.

The vineyard already has vine trellises that can be used without the inquisitor's permission, once they've been cleared of weeds. If you want more trellises or a trunk, you have first to complete a quest for the inquisitor, after which the workbench in the vineyard will appear.

Fertilizer[edit | edit source]

Fertilizer can be used to increase the growth rate, quality, and yield of crops. Peat is the most basic fertilizer, while more specialized and effective fertilizers can be produced through alchemy. The greater the fertilizer's effect, the more time, material, and energy it will require to manufacture. You must use the fertilizer before planting a seed. To use the fertilizer select it instead of the seed, a sign will appear that reminds you that this field is fertilized. Afterwards plant the seed.

Multiple types of fertilizers can be used on one farm plot, combining bonuses, however effects do not stack. For example, using
Peat
and
Quality fertilizer I
will apply the effects: +2 seeds, +2 produce, and a reduction in growth time. Different signs are displayed in the farm plot depending on which effects are active.
